In 411 BC, Greek playwright Aristophanes penned Lysistrata. The play tells the story of a group of courageous women who devise a unique strategy for dealing with their government's fiscal mismanagement and for ending the Peloponnesian War, which had been going on for 20 years at the time the play was first produced.

Now, more than 2,400 years later, have things really changed or can we still learn from this tale? Can uppity women in the era that gave us Trump and the endless Afghan conflict pick up any tricks from their ancient Greek sisters?
